Here I sit at home by the telephone waiting for it to ring. I am waiting for it to ring because I am in the market for several products and services.
I might need new vinyl siding. Maybe somebody will call me and tell me they will have a representative in my neighborhood tomorrow giving free estimates.
Or, I could use some cash. Maybe a fly-by-night mortgage company will call me and tell me they have some good news – that they have record low interest rates on second mortgages,
Or possibly somebody might call and tell me I won a free trip to wherever I pick from about 10 prime vacation spots.
It is possible a satellite company will call me offering me a deal of a life time with this week only free installation, the same deal they offered last week.
According to our caller I.D. a company calls from Las Vegas between one and three times a day – maybe they will call back with a deal I can’t refuse.
I am so lucky all these telephone solicitors are kind enough to call me to offer me such good deals. I don’t know how I could shop without them.
